Overview

 

The perfect companion for Austen’s devoted following For over 150 years, Jane Austen has charmed readers with her keen observations and satirical wit. Although set in the parlors and ballrooms of nineteenth-century Britain, her novels continue to resonate deeply with readers as her endearingly imperfect characters share their hopes and foibles, passions and disappointments, in their quest for love and ultimately happy marriage. Collected from her novels, early stories, and letters, The Wisdom of Jane Austen shares her witty and timeless views on a range of subjects, from love and marriage, to fashion and duels, and, of course, pride, prejudice, sense, and sensibility.

Meet the Author

 

Jane Austen (1775–1817) remains one of the most beloved authors in the English language, with her works frequently quoted and adapted for film and television. Austen was the sixth child of a country rector and led the quiet life of a country gentlewoman. Never married, she lived with her family, who knew of her writing and ultimately helped her find a publisher. Austen was not publicly identified as an author until after her death.
